Girlington Muslim Welfare Association:
Every year Masjid-E-Umar participates in the 'kids 4 kids' campaign with Ummah Welfare Trust. The children from our madrasah learn the importance of helping other kids around the world, appreciating everything that God has gifted them and at the same time thinking of others that are less fortunate than themselves.
The association raises money from our families and friends for the less fortunate by helping to build schools, masjids, medical centers, as well as much needed equipment.
Many children will be orphans so the money raised goes towards purchasing new clothes toys and gifts so that they can be happy and know that there are people out there that care. Alhamdulillah, last year we raised around £5000 from our Masjid.
We act upon the Hadith of the Prophet (SAW), who said the "best of you are those that benefit mankind the most"
